Drive-in Pallet Racking
Drive-in Pallet Racking is used where high density storage is required in warehouses with a lower number of product lines.
What is Drive-in Pallet Racking?
Drive-in Pallet Racking is constructed from similar components as the other systems with the exception that beams for pallet location are replaced by stub arms which act as a support member to a pallet-rail which runs from front to back of the application. The full range is manufactured in the UK at our purpose-built factory in Cannock, Staffordshire.
Predominantly used for slow moving products, Drive-In Pallet Racking is the perfect solution when storing a relatively low number of product lines or seasonal goods that can remain in storage for a considerable time.
Pallets are stored within a block system with two blocks typically serviced by one operating aisle. The principle of the system is the first pallet in is the last pallet out, unless a drive through racking system is deployed in which case pallets can be accessed either side.
What are the features & benefits of Drive-in Pallet Racks?
- High density rack storage which provides maximum pallet storage
- Ideal for low stock rotation or seasonal goods
- Predominantly utilised for cold, chill and bulk storage
- Suitable for fragile goods, which would otherwise run the risk of damage if block stacked
Frequently Asked Questions
Drive-In Pallet Racking is widely utilised by industries that store their products over longer periods. A cheese manufacturer for example will store their cheese over long periods in a chill-store whilst it matures. Retailers and 3PL companies will often stock-pile seasonal goods in this format or companies who only have a relatively low number of product lines will have Drive-In Racks in their warehouse.
Drive-In Pallet Racking is constructed from the same basic components as Conventional Pallet Racking but Pallets are stored within a block system with two blocks typically serviced by one operating aisle.
Trucks drive into the racking to load or retrieve pallets which are stored on pallet rails running front to depth within the system. This means that the first pallet that is stored in the rack is the last pallet out. In larger warehouses where additional space is available a Drive-through racking system where pallets can be accessed either side is an available option.
